Parking Meter Privatization Protest Planned For Sunday In Wicker Park
Despite the fact that Chicago’s parking meter lease is now well into its third year, a protest against the deal is planned for Sunday morning–at least according to a flier being circulated in the Wicker Park neighborhood.
This red 8.5″ x 11″ flier states, “Community residents in the Wicker Park area and throughout the City of Chicago are tired of the high cost of these leased meters…We need to send a message to the City Council to end this travesty. Please come and voice your opinion this coming Sunday.”
The press conference and protest is scheduled for Sunday, May 8th at 11:15 AM at 1400 N. Milwaukee Ave. in front of the 7-11 convenience store at the corner of Wood and Milwaukee.
No other information regarding who or what organization is organizing the event is located on the flier.
